Latvian Language Training for Foreigners
Baltic Media Language Training Centre in collaboration with Iveta Grinberga (Iveta Grīnberga), a Latvian language teacher with an international experience, offer an effective Latvian language course to foreign nationals willing to learn one of the oldest living languages of the civilization.
Latvian is one of the two (along with Lithuanian) living Baltic languages that form a separate sub-group of Indo-European language family. It has retained old grammar forms and word stems also found in Sanskrit. At the same time, Latvian is one of the official languages of the European Union that is still developing.

Iveta has developed and applies a brand new, original teaching method Discover Latvian used in Latvian and other language courses at the Baltic Media Language Training Centre.
Latvian language course is meant for foreigners anywhere in the world as well as for foreign nationals who have come to Latvia for work or other reasons and who are willing to master the language of the Latvian nation in an effective and fast manner.
Iveta Grinberga, the Lecturer, “My work is also my passion. I am glad I had this great opportunity to teach Latvian at the University of Washington in Seattle and introduce American students, who had never heard about our country before, to the Latvian culture, traditions and wisdom.
In today’s global world the views on language teaching are changing rapidly. The classic methods of memorizing or translation are being replaced by purposefully developed exercises and the language is mastered based on the principle learning by doing. It is facilitated by regular knowledge tests available online. Discover Latvian, the method developed by us, ensures successive language learning from the beginner's A1 level to the top – expert C2 level.”
